  • Parallelogram: async/await task
  • Box: sync task
  • Diamond: conditional branch
  • Egg: user interaction
  • Blue arrow: async task is allowed to settle but allowed to fail
  • Red arrow: async task success is asserted


  • A task begins when all its dependencies (arrows going into it) are fulfilled.
  • The success of setting up rageshake is never asserted, element-web has a fallback path for running without IDB (and thus rageshake).
  • Everything is awaited to be settled before the Modernizr check, to allow it to make use of things like i18n if they are successful.
